We will be celebrating the difference our volunteers make and thanking them for all their time and dedication during this year’s Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1-7 June.  

Ray, Vista’s Volunteer Development Manager said:

“Thank you to all our extraordinary volunteers, you've remained committed to supporting Vista and people with sight loss and we need you now more than ever!”

Susan Hoath, CEO at Vista said:

“Vista volunteers are an essential part of our workforce - whether they volunteer their time, skills, experience, knowledge or enthusiasm they are truly a part of Team Vista. It's a fact often missed that charities like Vista are led by volunteers - on our board, in our work and from across our community - helping us to improve what we do today and plan ahead to what we can do tomorrow. No matter what role you play with us - thank you!”

Charities across the UK will also be holding events to thank their volunteers and celebrate the power of volunteering. Last year there were over 600 events across the country, from award ceremonies to tea parties and barbecues.

For many charities the week will be a chance to showcase the range of volunteering opportunities on offer. Volunteer fairs and other events will be encouraged people to try volunteering for the first time and help people find out how, through volunteering, they can make a difference to a cause they are passionate about.

If you're interested in volunteering with us, you can find a list of our current opportunities on our volunteer vacancies page.
